Pirates of the Pacific

We had a few reports of pirates been stealing from our boats, after a long investigation, sources lead us to the thieves, unfortunately, we didnt have enough evidence to convict them.

Here they are, be careful, they are still on the loose.

Testimonial from Chris Miller

Hi Tracy,

Just a quick note to thank you, Ady, the crew of Valerie and the whole Pisces Team for a really memorable days fishing.
The preparations and organization was first class, with quick responses to my E-Mails and answers to the questions therein. For a client who was in Cabo for only 7 1/2 hours on a cruise ship, getting 6 1/2 hours on the water and almost 5 hours fishing in was a fantastic achievement.
Everything went smooth as clockwork, I was met within 10 minutes of getting to the cruise dock, the paperwork was all ready, 'Valerie' was waiting close by (no need to walk right round to her mooring) and 'she' was ready to go (bait, beer and gear all on board).
Now, about 'Valerie' and the crew. Firstly, thank you for the no cost upgrade. With time not on my side a fast boat to get me to 'Golden Gate' was essential and 'Valerie' delivered with a fast and comfortable ride. With my late start we were one of the last boats to get there but no bother, Capt Roberto put me straight on the fish with a lively 100lb Stripey hooked up within 20 minutes of arriving. A 25 minute fight later on 20lb Penn International stand-up gear and the fish was mine - a couple of quick photo's, a textbook release by deckhand Raymundo and my day was made.
3 good size Dorado and another stripey around 120lb (also released) completed the day - fantastic. Chasing and casting to 'tailing' marlin is something new to a (European) Atlantic angler who usually trolls lures or 'bait'n'switches' - reel good fun. I'll be back!!!
The crew really know their stuff and kept me right all day, all the tackle was top-notch and the boat was superb - ship shape and Bristol fashion as we say in the U.K.
Only 2 regrets;
1. I wish I had had more time. My best marlin day is 2 blues and my best day overall is 1 blue, 1 spearfish and 2 wahoo, so to get 5 fish is fantastic, another hour and I'm certain Capt Roberto would have got me that 3rd Marlin.
2. I wish I had taken my wife with me. She has always wanted to catch a Billfish but won't take on a big blue using heavy chair tackle. These stripeys however would be right up her street. (We have been trying to get her a spearfish for 10 years or so in the Canary Islands, but never get one when she is on the boat). Next time I'm in Cabo I'm going to book 2 or 3 days with you guys - and the wife is coming too, so watch out!!!!
To finish off, what a great day, what a great experience, what a great team. Thank you Pisces Sport fishing. I will be recommending you to my friends, clients and also the cruise line.

Testimonial from Bob Sallis.

Hi Tracy

I just wanted to drop you a quick line and say many, many thanks for organizing a charter for me when I arrived on my cruise ship Oosterdaam. The shore crew arranged a shared charter by putting a sign in the window, and it worked out very well.

I was thrilled to get La Brisa, as we fished with them during the IGFA in 2006. Rey is a great captain, and with Salvador, they are an amazing team. We left the wharf around 8:30am and headed to Golden Gate after buying some bait. When we arrived, the sea was boiling with action, and boats charging about to the many marlin coming up on the surface. Our crew got into the middle of a huge ball of mackerel and sardines, and proceeded to load up with more bait, which turned out to be a good thing. We began fishing around 10:00am and over the course of the next 4 hours, we pitched continuously to marlin, and had 21 strikes, 16 hook-ups and battles, and successfully got 11 marlin to the boat, all of which we released.
I have never seen the sea so active with marlin, whales, seals, birds, and every other specie of marine life as that day.

When we finally had lines in around 2:00pm and headed back to the cruise ship, we were tired and thrilled with the day's fish. Salvador made a special abalone dish, with cold beers to wash it down, and then we just roared along, - and were treated to a magnificent whale jumping show en route back to port.

It was probably one of the best fishing days I've ever had.

I've circulated some of my pics amongst my friends both here in Canada, in the Caribbean, and down in the U.S., and we're now planning a trip back in November.

I'll send you some of the marlin pics I took during the trip, and feel free to share them with Rey and Salvador.

All the very best, and tight lines,

Bob Sallis

Brad Rieland Testimonial

Weather is great in Cabo right now as is fishing, these guys had a great time releasing ten striped marlin aboard “La Brisa”, here this striped marlin lays in shock, awaiting it’s fate…..of course we let it go.

We had a fantastic time! Landing 10 stripers with the "La Brisa" on Jan 20/09 Thanks again, Rey & Salvador.
